Chris Benitez, who was arrested two weeks ago at Fort Hood in Texas, had nothing to say as he was escorting to the Fourth Avenue Jail Wednesday.

Investigators say Benitez started a fire at a Phoenix grocery store nearly eight years ago. Tarver, one of the many firefighters called out to the huge fire, was killed when he was trapped by falling debris and ran out of air.

Benitez is facing charges of arson and murder.
